DARTS: Ben back on Unicorn tour
DARTS ace Ben Ward is facing another big weekend in the PDC Unicorn Challenge Tour.
The Dorchester arrowsman, pictured, will play two competitions today and another tomorrow, both of which are being held in Reading.
And after a fine win in one such event at Barnsley back in July, he is out to continue the momentum.
Ward told Echosport: “The aim is to carry on from where I left off, but that is easier said than done.
“It’s been quite a while since I played in one of these events. It’s been a long break but I have been playing in a lot of other competitions in the meantime so hopefully it will be another good weekend.”
This has arguably been Ward’s best-ever year in the sport having also secured a place in the qualifying round for the BDO World Championships at the Lakeside.
Ward added: “You tend to have a lot of mixed fortunes in darts but you just have to keep taking the positives. I am definitely a better and more consistent player now and I just need to keep pushing on.
“The PDC Unicorn Challenge Tour features some of the best up-and-coming players in the game, so the fact I am sitting joint-10th in the rankings at present is very pleasing.
“If you finish in the top 16 you get free entry to qualification for a professional tour card and that continues to be my aim.”
